Make sure you have a large brooder for them, with wire over the top to keep pets and kids out  and little chicks inside.  The start flying early and can fall out or fly out and not be able to get back inside for the warmth of a heat lamp.   Have a shallow dish for their water and put clean marbles or glass pebbles in there, to help prevent drowning . Baby chicks lose their balance easily and can fall in and not be able to back out.  Also check them often for pasty butt, and clean as often as necessary.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
